“The level of excitement that the Brooklyn Young Republican Society has is beyond describing,” said Scott Mims, President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Society.  “As a community, we are in need of something new and fresh.  That’s exactly where we come in.  We will not stop until we have a deep red borough — let’s get started!”
